Here’s an awareness test that demonstrates how misdirection works.
As magicians, we all know that if we use strong misdirection, we can pull off even the most brazen trick or swindle and get away with it with no one the wiser. We can make large objects appear, disappear, trans-locate across the stage, and behave in magical ways no matter how closely the spectators watch. Provided we have successfully manipulated their attention, the dirty work is invisible to them.
Take this awareness test to see what I mean.
